Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition Permanently Docked At Luxor Hotel and Casino
Las Vegas, NV – Re-designed for Luxor, Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition brings to life the story of the ill-fated Ship through authentic artifacts, dramatic room recreations and hands-on interactive experiences. See the artifacts, hear the stories, walk the deck and feel the iceberg at Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition.
Beginning its 10-year residency at Luxor December 20, 2008, Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition has since provided visitors the opportunity to become a passenger and experience the tragic events of April 15, 1912. The Ship’s historical journey is laid out in chronological order: from the construction yards, to her maiden voyage, first and third class room re-creations, the Promenade Deck, the Grand Staircase, the fated sinking to modern day recovery efforts.
Unique to the Exhibition at Luxor are more than 20 never before seen artifacts including gaming chips, passenger personal papers and decorative sections from Titanic’s famed Grand Staircase. The Exhibition also showcases the largest piece of the Titanic ever recovered – the ‘Big Piece.’ This 15-ton piece of the Titanic’s starboard hull was raised 12,500 feet from the ocean floor and took more than 80 years, and two attempts, to surface.
“With more than two million visitors to date, we consistently see how Titanic resonates and touches everyone,” states Christopher J. Davino, President and CEO of Premier Exhibitions, Inc. “Each of us can relate to the passengers aboard Titanic and the retelling of her story feeds our curiosity time and again. We are thrilled to be part of the diverse entertainment options available at Luxor Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, and look forward to working with their exceptional staff and management as we present this blockbuster experience.”
In addition to the numerous interactive experiences inside the Exhibition, guests can learn interesting and little-known facts about Titanic like:
- The fourth funnel on Titanic was fake; it is believed that the fourth made the Ship look grander and only carried vents from the engine room and from the huge coal stoves in the main kitchen.
- The cost of a first-class ticket on Titanic to New York was $2,500, approximately $57,200 today. The most expensive rooms were more than $103,000 in today’s currency.
- There were only two bathtubs for the more than 700 third-class passengers aboard the Ship.
